    Pros

    Deloitte offers a wide breadth of services to a diverse group of clients; which allows practitioners to develop a diverse skill set.

    Cons

    In addition to working 50-70 hours a week (not including travel time), expect to work an additional 10-20 hours on mandatory firm initiatives.

    Pros

    Large pool to create connections
    Learning systems available are endless
    Work with big clients
    Work with very smart and talanted people at your level - good motivators

    Cons

    Easy to get caught up in politics, very important to make sure you are hired into the right group otherwise very easy to get stuck
    No focus on management training for managers - everything is focused on sales
    Seems that the managers that tend to stay are not focused on fostering good team environments

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be more focus on team performance and not just indiviual performance to foster a better sense of teamwwork and create better morale. It is very easy to feel lost in the shuffle with the current work environment.

    I have been working at Deloitte full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    -accelerated learning
    -5 weeks PTO
    -prestigious firm

    Cons

    -promotions based on years of service, not merit
    -very difficult to actually take and enjoy your PTO
    -long hours for relatively little compensation
    -partners are very out of touch with how the work is actually done and employees perceptions of them and the firm

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    At least try to pretend you care about your employees and stop complaining about how much other partners make in front of your staff when you are paying them pennies in comparison to your partner salary.

    Pros

    Professionals are just that - very professional and highly specialized.

    Cons

    Deloitte is a conglomeration of many companies and often times competes with itself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work more towards overall value to clients instead of individual P&Ls.

    Pros

    Excellent group of well educated, capable and motivated professionals. Great professional development, especially for junior staff. Many opportunities to develop and demonstrate ability to lead. Involved in interesting and meaningful assignments. Good comp and benefits.

    Cons

    Very challenging to find a good work-life balance. Firm values themselves far more than they value their clients success. Staff required to get involved in far too many non-client related efforts. Definition of individual and professional success changes within reporting periods. Success is too often based more on relationships than actual value of contributions. Lack of trust within the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Avoid the strong tendency to micro and over manage. Select competent leaders to take responsibility over projects and initiatives and allow them the flexibility to lead them, without constant oversight and fine tuning. Allow professionals to take controlled risks and fail - helping them to learn and grow from the experience.

    I have been working at Deloitte

    Pros

    Lots of interesting projects across different clients, industries and roles for a consulting analyst
    Good base pay, decent lifestyle job even though there are some projects with high burn

    Cons

    They really need to start paying analysts year end bonuses. The rest of the market is doing it
    The staffing model could use some serious work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is a good, but not great, place to work. The culture and pay need to improve slightly here

    Invest in your people a little more

    I have been working at Deloitte

    Pros

    Work locally and travel is a local commute.
    Great opportunities to learn within Deloitte.
    Great culture within the firm, but it is a competitive culture to the company. Boys locker room in high school kind of feel at social functions.

    Cons

    AMS is like a contract position. No work and you are let go.
    AMS is not treated with the same respect as the Partner model staff.
    No bench time and little management support in finding a new position. 2 weeks rolling off a client and 2 weeks to find a new project.
    Culture is a bit of you are with the in group or not.
    Increasing the off shore and outside the US markets as a focus. US based staff not as important.
    The client can make all the differance in your experience and success.
    Lots of turnover in the AMS model.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the AMS model to allow people to work on projects shorter than a year to minimize turnover.
    Have a path for career development and opportunities within AMS. This seems to be lacking.
